No, non interference engine.

They might. The 1.3 for USA sales was required to be non- interference, but if the 1.3 was sold out of the USA it may be an interference engine. Is it the SOHC 8 valve version? What country is this car located?

Did some reading, but did not find proof the the non USA 1.3 was interference. This one is "Google" intensive.
